On Wednesday, July 8, 2020 37-year-old Jorge was riding his bicycle with his two children, two-year-old Nathan and four-year-old Madelyn. At around 8:30 PM, while he was riding his bicycle with Nathan and Madelyn, a speeding car suddenly turned the corner and slammed into the bike that Jorge and his children were riding. Fortunately, Jorge's two children survived the accident; however, Jorge did not. He was severally impacted. Immediately after the accident, Jorge was rushed to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center to be treated for his severe injuries. When he arrived at the hospital, Jorge lost consciousness and went into a coma due to the serious impact he experienced from the accident. Discovering that he had critical internal injuries, the doctors put Jorge on medications to treat his injuries; however, Jorge's body did not respond well to the medications, as his bodily organs began to go into failure. In efforts to save his life, doctors amputated one of his legs but unfortunately Jorge's organs all went into failure and Jorge passed away.
Jorge was a husband, a father, and a friend to many. He was a hard working man who always put his family's needs first. He was a loving and caring father that did everything he could to put a smile on his kids faces. He was always there for anyone who needed help and support. His caring and giving heart will always be remembered. May he rest in peace. My heart goes out to Berta, Jorge's beloved wife, who is now a widow and a single mother of two young children who have lost their father due to this tragic accident. As a single mother myself, I can understand and sympathize with the difficulties that Berta will now be facing as a single mother raising two children on her own. Given the recent times, Berta is financially struggling to give her late husband a proper memorial service and cover all the funeral expenses. I have crated this GoFundMe Page as a way to help Berta and her family with some of the funeral cost. Please keep Jorge's family in your prayers, and know that any contributions you make would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. God bless you.
